There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.
1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.
2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.
3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.
4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.
5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.
7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.
8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.
9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once.

Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.
10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.
11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.
12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.
13. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.
Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

I think it is pretty volatile I personally have never stayed in touch with one single Ultrapeer for longer then 15 minutes maximum so using the spynode approach to catch individual big sharers will probably take them atleast a couple of weeks to gather enough Query Hit messages like lets say a couple of thousand of them(so they have to spend alot of $$$$).And yes you are correct each servent do have a unique servent ID but I am not exactly sure if that ID is a steady one or if it changes everytime you restart your client using the Microsoft GUID system.Maybe you know better about that?
Yes that is true but I think that the Gnutella developers are working one some kind of thrusted node system that will help alleviate this probably not entirely but atleast make it harder for them to do so.
Yes the QueryHits is probably evidence enough these days since the introduction of the 0.6 Gnutella protocol and its implimentation of the Bearshare extended QueryHit message that also contains a trailer message with amongst other things a flag indicating how many uploads from a servent that has been succesfull.And If I where under investigation I would probably receive a letter from my ISP varning me and actually I would prefer to receive such a letter so that I know what is happening so that I could remove my shares of Gnutella(After all I do not want to loose my Internet connection).Lets just hope that I will be among the lucky ones as most people will be personally I think that the RIAA are a bunch of lazy people and that they will most likely target their efforts against US citizens so I think I am more safe and so are you.
This is irrelevant know since I now know that the QueryHit messages is all the evidence they need.
NO need to use such harch language!And you are correc they do not have to Browse my Shared directory to get evidence but I still think that they are lazy enough to use this method instead of the spy node tactic since that option will cost them much more and give them alot of work.Warner Music used the Browse Host method when performing a Interdiction attack against me which I wrote about in this thread:
I would like to thank you for spiking me into seek out new knowledge of the Gnutella protocoll.Previously I had an extensive knowledge about the clients and a generall understanding of the Gnutella protocoll but now I know that had some knowledge gaps about some particular parts of the protocoll that I have now filled.
By the way I have looked at some of your posts on the forum and sometimes you are logged in as guest and sometimes as member.It is better if you are always logged in with your member account.
Since the facts in the previous posts are incorrect I am thinking of maybe delete this poll and re-write a new more accurate one.!

Next version of LimeWire will add information in the library table how often you sent a query hit for each file you share. Then you can see for yourself how aggressively you are advertising your shares to the network.
Don't ask me, - I'm not going to help you.
Here's the latest LimeWire from cvs, now showing how many results your client has sent for each file you share. It might still show you some error messages if it is hashing files, - just click them away, they don't matter.
Although I knew that LimeWire was sending out lot's of queryhits, I was still astonished by the amount. - A spynode can have a list of all your shares within a minute without even bothering to browse your host.
- shows numbers of alternate locations / upload attempts / successful uploads & queryhits sent for each file
- does only send queryhits while there are upload slots available
It's usable, however there might still occur some errors.
Don't ask me, - I'm not going to help you.
I'm with Bobomon: an excellent exchange. After reading earlier posts about RIAA attacks, I was curious about how they would go about compiling information. This thread has cleared up a lot of doubts. Thankyou Joakim and Kreiger88.
I hope Joakim has some ointment to rub into the burns, though.
RIAA bad ... LimeWire good ???
What's the deal here ... the RIAA Nazi Gestapo isn't going to be showing up on anyone individual's door with a subponea ...
though I did enjoy reading what everyone had to say here ... I think that somepoeple are being just a bit paranoid.
hehe, I voted for it too ;-)
Well, let's see. Everyone needs to do what they can to slow down [rectal orifices] like the RIAA who think simply because they control the music industry that they control the sounds my computer makes. Personally I see it as an invasion of privacy and a red flag when it comes to the destruction of basic rights and freedoms.
That being said, have you ever been to court? Have you ever had to pay a lawyer? Do you have any idea how much MONEY that costs? Be smart. The RIAA will go bankrupt if they have to chase every single person around to prove something, spending thousands of dollars in lawyer fees to persecute someone for a million dollars, who only has $5 to their name.
Not to mention, hackers who care about keeping information free, should find ways to create 'fake' limewire queries or whatever, so you can say "Well how do you know what you saw was real or not?" Confuse the matter, then watch how you manage your resources.
If you get a letter saying you're going to jail for software piracy. "Lose" your old hard drive. Where did it go? It stopped working, you replaced it, and it went in the garbage. Hopefully you throw it out before you get a subpoena otherwise you might get in a bit of trouble ;-P
Anyways, I'm not going to panic until people in my country start seriously getting persecuted. I share a few files, sometimes a lot, sometimes nothing; not terrabytes worth. Although I would really love to, (it's fun) I'm not going to take too many risks.
I'm sure my life won't be ruined if I had a few copywritten songs on my computer that were identified as being 'shared', but omfg. EVERYONE does this. It's like prohibition. You can't enforce a law the general public would be dead against.
The people who are pushing for this whole idiotic ban of the internet are the [non-bifurcated after exhaust vents] running / working for the major corporations that make billions of dollars off sellign propaganda to 12 year old girls/boys and getting them to spend all their parents money buying some stupid britney spears/nsync nonsense. Considering the techniques they use to sell and inspire desire for their products, I'm not really going to feel bad about making things difficult for them.
Welcome to the new war.
Welcome to spelling class !!!
The word for today is
Thanks a lot ursula

Don't worry about any of this junk...
And, the poll is flawed because it does NOT include the ONLY rational reason for wishing to disable others from Browsing you...
It takes a whole big basketful of bandwidth !
A lot in comparison to that which is needed for many other things...
It's a really nice feature... It doesn't really bother me and I usually have it enabled...
The only other 'real threat' is that some people are sometimes going to Browse you and say, "Hmmm, OK... I'll just download ALL of it !!!"....
lol... It happens, a lot !
Sort of 'skews' the old sharing statistics, hmmm ?
Why shouldn't you worry ?
Because if you have not installed PeerGuardian than you're not really trying to protect yourself.
PeerGuardian blocks the IPs of the above mentioned baddies...
